Is it so bad to leave features in branches for a bit longer while we try to get a stable release out? The proposal is for committers to hold off committing features into trunk while we test and stabilize it. Why don’t we give it a try and see if it works?

If we fail to get consensus, we have failed even without trying something new. What is worse?
